In theory the same basic engine for tower defender is that of Warcraft or Command & Conquer, etc. And this could be 2D or 3D once we get the base in place.  

Ie you can make your maps, sprites and explosions as complex as you like with lots of shapes, sub animations, textures, shadings, etc. 

First we walk, then we run, then we flap our arms, jump off a cliff and see what happens.
